European Speed Skating Championships

The European Speed Skating Championships are a series of long track speed skating events held annually to determine the best allround speed skater of Europe.

History

The International Skating Union has organised the European Championships for Men since 1893 (unofficial Championships were held in the years 1891–1892) and the European Championships for Women since 1970. Since 1990, the men's and women's European Championships have been held at the same time and venue.

In 2017, the men's and women's European Sprint Speed Skating Championships were held at the same time and venue. In 2018, the first European Single Distance Speed Skating Championships was held instead.
